My father was with the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion that was the first Canadian unit on the ground on D-Day. He never spoke to us about his experience in the war and today I realize that he likely never recovered from what today is described as PTSD. These photos remind me that I must someday visit Normandy to acknowledge the sacrifice.
I recently bought the "Band of Brothers" DVD collection. I've heard it was the most accurate depiction of D-Day and beyond. They were truly the greatest generation ever.
